One of Bangkok's oldest attractions, the Dusit Zoo has been around for over six decades. It's located in the heart of old town Bangkok, near some more regal attractions like the Ananta Samakhom Throne Room and Dusit Palace, but the royalty here are the animals. There are animals from around the world here, ranging from those you would never expect to see in Bangkok, penguins and kangaroos, to the big staples like tigers, lions, giraffes, and hippos, who all inhabit the African Savannah section. The zoo itself is quite massive, with reptiles, birds, and even elephants getting their own spacious section, and there is even a lake to go paddling in, plus a mini train that goes around the property. It is easy to spend more than a day here, and it's best to choose your top spots first, as the ground really are large. If you get hungry, there is a great food court and even a 7-11 on the property, probably the only zoo in the world with a 7-11!
- Outdoor Activities: "Best to go in the morning to beat the crowds and heat here. Take a taxi, as the zoo is well off the sky train and metro lines, and a bit hard to reach."
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: For a great family spot outdoors in Bangkok, the zoo is a good option.
